86 players have, so far, started a game in goal for Everton, including 2 outfield players (see the notes below)!
In addition, 1 goalkeeper - John Ruddy in February 2006 - made his only Everton appearance as an
early substitute in a Goodison Park League game against Blackburn after Iain Turner had been sent off.
Several outfield players have also unexpectedly had to step in between the sticks midway through games,
following injuries, sendings-off and so on to the starting goalkeeper.
12 goalkeepers made just 1 appearance for the club - William Thomas, William Sutton, John Patrick,
John Palmer, Robert Depledge, William Bromilow, Mike Stowell, Espen Baardsen, John Ruddy,
Carlo Nash, Joăo Virgínia and Robin Olsen.
John Patrick must have felt particularly aggrieved to keep a clean sheet in a November 1896 6-0 League win
against Burnley - and then never to be selected again!
Oh, and just 1 Everton 'keeper has scored a goal for the club!
Tim Howard succeeded with a huge clearance against Bolton at Goodison in a January 2012 League game!
Gathered together here - and via the links above - are just about every statty thing you'd ever need to
know about Everton goalkeepers! Have fun!

* Jack Crelley was a left-back who played the first 12 minutes in goal in a 0-0 League draw at home to Man City in December 1904.
  Normal 'keeper Leigh 'Dick' Roose had failed to arrive due to fog and his last minute replacement, Billy Scott, arrived late!
  In October 1905 Crelley also took over in goal at half-time after Scott withdrew injured in a League match at Sheff Utd.

 
Hope Robertson played in a number of outfield positions for Everton in the 1890s - on the wing, centre-forward and half-back.
  In October 1892 - with Everton suffering a goalkeeping injury crisis - he played the full match in goal in a 4-3 League win at
  Newton Heath (later to be renamed Man Utd).
  A year earlier, in October 1891, Robertson had also taken over in goal halfway through the 1st half in a League match at Bolton
  after 'keeper David Jardine had been injured.
